Warzone’s notorious Baka Bros — Repullze, DiazBiffle, and LuckyChamu — hosted their very own $10,000 custom tournament to prepare for the World Series of Warzone which ultimately saw Aydan’s team coming away with the win. Here’s a complete recap of all the action.
- Aydan’s team won the private lobby trios tournament
- Teams composed of invited players and qualifying Twitch subscribers.
- Hosted by the Baka Bros: Repullze, Lucky Chamu, and Diaz Biffle.
The World Series of Warzone is officially run by Activision and will be the biggest tournament the game has ever seen. Across both Europe and North America, top competitors will be fighting for their share of the $1.2m total prize pool.
While that tournament will kick off on June 23, some of the top pros gathered to prepare for the event, and the Baka Bro-Down represented the perfect opportunity.

Baka Bro-Down: Warzone tournament results & recap
The unique custom game event had teams playing a little differently to usual. While kills were still important for overall point-totals, a higher placement was just as vital. As a result, certain Trios were more cautious than usual.
From Swagg’s team to the likes of Warsz and IceManIsaac, plenty of Warzone’s top competitors couldn’t quite find their footing in the private lobby format. Instead, the more patient and tactical players like Iron and ZLaner found themsevles higher up on the overall standings.
Despite dying to an illegal RPG early into the event, Tommey’s team managed to secure a whopping 98 points for a fourth-place finish. In the end though, it was Aydan’s monstrous performance that pushed his team over the edge to secure the top spot.

Baka Bro-Down: tournament schedule & format
The Baka Bro-Down aimed to imitate the World Series of Warzone format for maximum preparation. It was spread over two days on June 19-20. Day 1 kicked off at 6PM PST on Saturday, June 19, with Trio kill-racing until 9PM PST. There were 40 pre-qualified teams and only 10 made it through to Day 2.
Day 2 kicked off at 6PM PST on Sunday, June 20. All 50 trios loaded into a private lobby together and played six matches. Here’s how scoring worked:
- 1 Kill = 1 Point
- 1st Place = 2x Points Multiplier
- 2nd-15th Place = 1.5x Points Multiplier
- 16th-50th Place = 1x Points Multiplier

Baka Bro-Down: Prizing

First place walked away with $6,000, second claimed $3,000, while third nabbed $1,000 for their efforts.
